FRANKFURT, GERMANY and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- DE-CIX, the world's leading Internet Exchange operator, participates today in a panel discussion that focuses on the importance of robust communications infrastructure in New York City. Titled "NYC as a Connectivity Hub for Technology," the conversation addresses how to maintain New York City as a key global technology hub; the communications infrastructure required to provide adequate connectivity to businesses and residences; the emerging needs of high-tech and high-growth companies; and much more.
